Jack-pins.
I found the technology of making jack-pins in the report of Uriy Kimborovich (bim), that he used for his schooner “Izmail”, for what I’m very grateful to him. I made a simple device out of the materials I had.
Material - pear tree. Firstly I prepared the bars of the desired diameter, and so as not to waste too much material (for the support fixture in the collet) I was carving from a long rod, as the length of the coordinate table would allow me.

They are really looking good - Great to see, that such work is possible also without an expensive lathe - Many thanks for showing us your jig and the method you are producing them - very good result

Thumbs-Up
Both versions of the Galley Stove are looking good - but you are right, the revised version has more sharp edges on top, so it is looking more authentic.
Great details
And I fully underline the words by Nigel !!
